Airbnb Acquires Urbandoor

Airbnb has acquired Urbandoor, a global online marketplace designed to make it easier for professionals to find furnished and serviced apartments for extended business trips, relocations, and other longer-term stays.

Incubated with support from Greystar Real Estate Partners, and founded by Erik Eccles, Benjamin Renaud, and Zack Chandler in 2015, the Urbandoor footprint today includes apartment communities in more than 1,500 cities in over 60 countries.

“We started Urbandoor because we wanted to connect traveling and relocating professionals with the right apartment every time, anywhere. Joining the Airbnb family will help us make good on our goals and expand our work with multifamily and corporate housing partners to bring even more great places to stay to Airbnb travelers,” said Erik Eccles.

All Urbandoor employees will join Airbnb, and over time, Urbandoor listings for long-term stays will also be bookable through the Airbnb platform.

“Airbnb is partnering with property owners, developers, and residents to support hosting around the world. With the Urbandoor team, we’re looking forward to building on this work by developing new technology to benefit the real estate community and improve the guest booking experience for business travelers and anyone relocating or staying for extended periods of time,” said Greg Greeley, President of Homes, Airbnb.
